. president obama and chris matthews will say this is a false issue. in white house fact sheet, the first bullet point that the white house makes and the first one that president obama says continuing to strengthen the border security. if i could make a final point, i think that republicans and also democrats should stop thinking about this in terms of politics. good policy is good politics. i don't think republicans should worry about who will vote for them in years coming because of something they do today. they should do the right thing for the economy and the national security. it's better than doing nothing. >> shouldn't it be coupled with entitle reform? >> bob: a couple of things here i'd say. the vast, vast majority of people work and you can see them in city. they are working. they are not near to go on the dole. obama and the senate called for them not to get the welfare grant. the other thing as dana pointed out, she did not point this out, i'll point it out. the border got more and more secure every year. it is good policy. we have to deal with this. if we turn to politics rig

with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a way to bring right and left together. i happening the number-1 failure of president obama is not the economy. it's his failure to find a way to bring us all together. >> eric: chris, what about that? >> well, i think it's easy to put it on president obammasm the fact is, this has been building and arguably building for years. the division that we have between the parties. the issues are difficult. the solutions are more complex. it is not easy to find that compromise. it is easy to say that it's president obama's fault. i heard that from the previous president. but the reality is, you cannot dance with someone if they keep saying no. when you have a republican party that is divided amongst itself, in terms of where the country should go, how do you find that common ground that basically unites the country? it's extremely dif

is working on its own immigration bill and president obama will address the issue tomorrow in las vegas. the bipartisan senate plan includes a path to citizenship, but illegal immigrants will have to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino

out there, so, yes, this is a pressing issue right now. >> jennifer: let's listen for a second to president obama talking about the environment during his inaugural address. >> obama: we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. [ cheers and applause ] >> jennifer: well, in reality, of course, the president might have to rely on executive orders to get things done because there are so many people in the republican controlled house that don't believe in climate change at all. do you think, james, that there can be meaningful change with executive orders alone? >> this is the big question right now, isn't it? and just to step back one moment. it was important i think to mention just how prominent climate change was in that speech. i personally heard climate scientists and climate journalists cheering around the country. and it took eight sentences in the inaugural address. >> jennifer: woo! >> yeah but of course congress will be contrary to any big grand deals. i think pres
issues with the re-elections or elections going on in that country. president obama won and as a second-term president there is always a tremendous advantage of pushing the process forward. this phase leading up until the inauguration israeli elections has been called a hallmark stage. jordan with three leaders in europe, the british, the french and the germans are all marching towards washington february and march to say, mr. president, it's time to really engage on the palestinian process. prime minister netanyahu understands that and whatever he does to form his coalition, he's got to keep in mind that the international community strongly led by the europeans and hopefully with the united states is going to be knocking on his door and that of the palestinians to move the process forward. >> do you worry that in this election you did also have the rise of new voices in israel that openly talk about the permanent annexation of the west bank and gaza and talk about the fact that there is no palestinian state and that jordan is the palestinian state. >> since arab spring, at the beginnin
's agricultural heart lands to remainries in the gulf. environmentalists have an issue because it is going to separate climate change. they're saying that if obama decides to sign this permit, he is basically going against what he said during the inauguration. let's take a look at what he did say about the climate change during the inauguration. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. [ applause ] >> some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> well, the reason why this is now making news today is because 53 of our u.s. senators have been urging obama to sign the permit. they don't care about what it's going to do to the climate. later, we'll talk about the financial aspects of this. michael hastierings, you ever more on this story. it's a little ridiculous. >> it's a 1700-mile pipeline. it's been delayed a number of times now but the governor of nebraska has just signed off
was a year where we tried to keep the atmosphere positive -- internal issues with the re-election or the elections that were going on in that country. president obama won, and as a second term president, there's always an advantage of pushing the peace process forward. this phase, reeding up until the inauguration, israeli elections has been what we call the hallmark stage. in order has similar countries and with three leaders in europe, the british, the french and the germans are all marching to the president in march to say it's time to engage on this palestinian process. primary netanyahu knows that and whatever he does to form his coalition, he's going to keep in mind that his international -- is going to be knocking on his door and that of the palestinians to move the process forward. >> do you worry that in this election, you did also have the rise of new voices in israel that openly talk about the permanent annexation of the west bank and gaza, that talks about there is no palestinian state and that jordan is the palestinian state? >> i think since arab spring, you
routes to talk up the issue. hari is back with our look. >> sreenivasan: just eight days after president obama unveiled a sweeping proposal to address gun violence, senate democrats put forward a plan of their own that would renew a ban on assault weapons. the measure was introduced by california democrat dianne feinstein, who led the effort to pass the first ban in 1994. that legislation expired a decade later, and feinstein said it was past time to take action. >> we have done our best to craft a responsible bill to ban these assault weapons. guns that are designed for military use bought all over this country and often used for mass murder. >> sreenivasan: feinstein's proposal would ban the sale, transportation, importation or manufacturing of more than 150 specifically named firearms as well as certain semi-automatic rifles, handguns and shotguns; limit ammunition magazines to ten rounds; grandfather weapons legally owned on the date of enactment and, exempt over 900 weapons used for hunting or sporting activity. in response, the national rifle association released a statement that s
has a different view on gun control than president obama does. and he's the first to stand up on this issue in this way so we're going to play that momentarily, but i want to talk to you first about what's happening at the white house. the president saying i'm going directly to law enforcement and try to get their support for this. and sort of trying to go directly to the american people, which has been his approach. in the meantime though, his comments in the new republic are getting a lot of attention, chris. he was asked about how he's going to work with republicans, going forward, whether it's on gun control or immigration or what have you. and this is what he told the new republic. the interview was conducted by somebody who worked on his late campaign and contribute today his campaign and obviously a friendly interview. this is what the president said, one of the biggest factor is going to be how the media shapes debates. if a republican member of congress is not punished on fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with the democrat on a bill of common interest, then you
or defense party. you're part of the obama team. this is a good opportunity for the american people to get a solid airing on the issues that you know, face us. nuclear iran. our troops in afghanistan. you mentioned the defense budget, missile defense. proliferation. all these issues. so i'm hoping that chuck hagel will be pressed by members of the senate on the senate armed services committee about these very important issues that affect us today. jon: presumably he has been asked those opinions on those issues by the president. the president wouldn't have picked him for the job if he didn't share the president's views? >> no argument there because that is why this is really important because there is lot to be concerned about the president's foreign policy. look at syria, 22 months, 62,000 deaths. we have had no effect on iran's movement towards a nuclear weapon. what about the rise of china? are we going to have the forces we need to make that pivot to china? i said in that pies in the "new york post" yesterday, are we getting a powerful pivot or a plucky pirro wet? we need forces out th
house strategy right now? >> well, i think that you are starting to see president obama's strategy trying to get stiffer gun laws enacted unfold part of that tactic includes meeting with those who have a stake in this issue like gabby giffords and mark kelly. of course they have a pact so they are collaborating to get out a message. i also think you're going to see president obama hit the road, get out of d.c., get out of the kwhoois and take his message to the people. of course he's trying to get stiffer gun laws enacted which include reenstating the ban on assault weapons, limiting high-capacity magazines. we saw joe biden in virginia last week doing the same thing. he had a round table discussion about that. but then there's sort of this second track. they will be working in conjunction with the retooled version of the campaign which is organizing for action. they will be trying to mobilize people around this issue at the grassroots levels. the question is how much capital do they want to spend on this. some are going to be tough to get through congress. >> organizing for action
's erolfed, thank goodness, on the gay issue, and he says in his testimony, he'll say it in a few minutes, that he fully supports obama's positions. and he'll be grilled about that and grilled on his past. but in the end, the senate is a club. he needs five republican votes. >> five more, right? >> five more. several -- well, there are 55 democrats -- >> he's got one republican now. >> so he needs four more. and lindsey graham's is using the hearing as leverage to get more information on benghazi, but that doesn't relate to hagel. in the end, it will be hard to vote against a guy, who with his brother, has five purple hearts in vietnam. >> i want to show some of these ads that have been running, and where they've been running, it's not just a classic washington, d.c., ad. it's been running in alaska, alaska, targets bo s both lisa murkowski and begich. arkansas, probably a targeting of pryor, who's up in 2014. colorado, that surprised me a little bit. i don't think either senator is seen as likely to be against. louisiana, i get landrieu there. and north carolina -- >> it's all about the
. sunday at noon eastern on book tv on c-span2. >> president obama is set to deliver the state of the union. a discussion on how foreign policy and national security issues will be handled in the president's second term. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> good afternoon, folks. good afternoon, folks. can i get everyone to sit down and to quietly? thank you. i think we are going to start here. good afternoon, everybody. i am the vice-president for foreign defense studies at the american enterprise institute. welcome to the first in our annual series of state of the union policy events. every year, aei scholars come together and we look forward to the challenges of the year ahead and policy questions that have been raised and are likely to come up, and try and look forward a little bit, think a little bit about what the right answers are to the questions that are being posed. it is and as the events we do with only aei fellows. we are happy to be -- together with them. i will lay out what the other events are at the end of the session. let me introduce those who are here with me at the table.
used in that capacity by the obama administration. i do not agree with him on all of the issues. i was troubled by his attempts to negotiate with bashar assad, who was very little credibility. he first voted against the war in iraq, then voted for the surge that made it possible for us to rescue a failing situation. but i do not think he will truly for -- to truly make the foreign policy of the u.s. any more than hillary clinton really did. this is one of the most centralized foreign-policy positions of ever seeing with the president and a handful of close aides truly making those decisions. i think john carey will be a capable the plant carrying out those decisions. host: there will be a live hearing today. one of the nominees, chuck keiko, nominated to be the -- chuck heigl, nominated to be the defense secretary. what do you think about? guest: there is no question he has been outside the mainstream of the senate. do not get me wrong, his hair was them in vietnam is something everybody should respect and his many years of service in the country, something for which i have the mon
common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority. it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now have before us over the finish line. poll after poll shows americans, democrats, republicans, and support ours solution. and a president who is eager to solve this problem. there is no reason you should not get this done as soon as possible. our economy requires a solution. families across america are praying for a solution. that is the truth. >> thank you. since we came to the senate, 16 years ago, i have been working on the immigration issue. i have never felt more positive about the prospects of immigration reform than i do today. some significant things have occurred right here in this room this week. a bipartisan group of senators, my colleague, senator mccain, as well as two others in support, they have all step forward with a set of principles we think will guide us to fixing this broken immigration system and america. you are not privy to what is going on in " -- behind closed doors. i have been heartened. we tackled sever
fundamental issues in american history and politics and one that gets talked about much less than it should. that is race in america. a few days ago, president barack obama put its hand on the lincoln and martin luther king bible and took the oath of office almost 150 years since the emancipation population went into effect. he talked about the country's historic and continuing march for greater freedom. we at the "washington monthly" found it appropriate to devote the subjects to the conditions of minorities in america today. president obama as measured by his november vote totals retained the support of the americans of color, neither he nor the country have talked about much of race. he mentioned race fewer times in his first two years than any democrat resident since 1961. when he did talk about race, it often provoked a fierce backlash as when he said last year that if he had a son, he would look like trayvon martin, the young man who was killed tragedy in florida. tremendous backlash to that. he went silent on that issue. there has been generally a politically imposed code of silence
by senator hagel seemed to imply a willingness to talk to iran on some issues that i believe most of us would view as non-negotiable, and any willingness to talk to iran would need to be highly conditional. toator hagel's reassurance me and my office that he supports the obama administration's strong stance against iran is significant. we look forward to hearing senator hagel today in some depth on that subject. we will also be interested in hearing senator hagel's statement on the public statements is made on israel and the united states, that our policy of non-engagement with the syrians as, "isolated us more than the syrians," and a 2009 statement that "we should not isolate hamas," a terrorist organization. there is much to be explored at this hearing. but as we struggle with the difficult security challenges facing our nation, the president needs to have a secretary of defense in whom he has trust, who will give him unvarnished advice, a person of integrity, and one who has a personal understanding of the consequences of decisions relative to the use of military force. senator hagel cert
